Bøur – my visit to Faroe Islands | Gjertsen Photography

Bøur is a village in the Faroe Islands with a population of 75. It has views over the sea and the rocky islet Tindhólmur with its many peaks, Gáshólmur and the two “drangar”, (tall, pointed clifftops sticking up from the sea). This motif is known on many paintings and photographs. The old houses in the village are bunched together with narrow lanes between them.

I visited the Faroe Islands in August 2018 and that was a fabulous experience for a photographer. I these post you can read more about other great photo locations in the Faroe Islands. Saksun is an exotic remote hillside village and a photographers hotspot. Tjørnuvík is a village with a good view of Risin and Kellingin – a great photo location for landscape photographers. Gasadalur village is located in the west of Vagar Island and it is a natural beauty that is tucked between lush green fields and soaring rocky mountains. Sørvágsvatn is perched hundreds of feet above the ocean and it tilts outwards – but this is actually an optical illusion. And nearby you’ll also find the beautiful Bøsdalafossur.
